Parents in Touch (via Amazon) -
Parents need to approach the issue of drugs from an informed position. This book is a valuable guide for all parents. Ensure you know what to look out for and how to help. Find out what attracts young people to drugs; read the useful A to Z of the various drugs; and develop a trusting and sharing relationship with young people so the door is always open for discussion - this book will help you with all these aspects. Practical advice and case studies will be relevant to young people reading the book as well as to parents, so I would encourage you and your family to share it and talk about the issues - this book is an ideal start.
